The Honor Magic 6 Lite, a member of the upcoming Magic 6 series, has surfaced in the Google Play Supported Device List. The device is listed under the model number ALI-NX1, which is the same model number as the recently announced Honor X9b. This suggests that the two phones are essentially identical, with the only difference being the branding.
Honor Magic 6 Lite visits Google Play list, launch seems imminent
Honor has a history of rebranding its X-series phones for the Magic series in Europe, as seen with previous models like the Magic 5 Lite (Honor X9a) and the Magic 4 Lite (Honor X9). Therefore, it's likely that the X9b will be marketed as the Magic 6 Lite in Europe.
As a reminder, the X9b is a slim and lightweight device with a 6.78-inch AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 chipset, two RAM configurations (8GB and 12GB), and 256GB of internal storage. It runs on Magic OS 7.2 based on Android 13 and features a 5,800mAh battery with 35W fast charging support.
The camera setup includes a 108MP primary camera, a 5MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP macro camera on the back, with a 16MP selfie camera on the front. Other features encompass dual SIM support, 5G connectivity, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.1, GPS, NFC, a USB-C port, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
